Russell Peak North Shoulder

The North Shoulder is a little bit more mellow, and is often the backup option for people heading up there. You ski almost along the ridge on the north side, back down towards the pumphouse basin.  The north shoulder is generally a little bit sheltered and the snow is a little colder, but it is also windblown.

Details

The northern drainages of Big Cottonwood Canyon are much more subtle than their southern counterparts. They are less steep, more rounded and friendly looking, and have a lot more sun. There is mellow tree skiing, more open terrain, and shorter tours. The elevation rarely gets over 10,000ft.

How to Get There

take 190 east out of Salt Lake City. The stuff on the left is the northern drainages. Round trips are on 5-8 miles on average.
